Time stamped entries

Hi All,

Is there a way to create a column with time stamp entries like the comments section? I want to make a highly visible column of entries that show when the entries were made. Right now the comments column can not be renamed or even copied.


Regards Tony

    Do you know about the View History Option?  It was a revelation for me that freed up column space.  In case you don't know, if you right click on a cell the drop down features View History.... about halfway down the optrions.  This will show who changde the cell as well as when.  

    I haven't figured out how to print this hiostory yet, though. 

  • Hi Jae,

    Thanks for the reply. I am looking for something like below so that I can show in a presentation. Let me know if you come up with something.

    Thanks Tony


  • Are you just looking to have the row stamped with a date/time?


    If that's the case, you can add a column and choose the "Auto-Number/System" type, then choose either the "Created (Date)" or "Modified (Date)" to determine either when the row was created or last modified.
